This is the original reason I came to GameCritics over a decade ago! There were many regular posters that kept me coming back for (mostly) intelligent game discussion. Of course, times changed, including the web, and people moved on. But I still lurk every so often.

As for the main site, I still use the reviews to find games I may not have thought of or get better perspectives of games every other site is saying is the best game of all time. The reviews are still solid, even with all the new writers. The fact that the site is still around should be testament enough to the quality of thought and writing, even if the quantity of readers never reaches levels of other gaming sites.

On a personal note, I will always be grateful to GameCritics for publishing a few of my reviews: here, here, and here!
